Throw Back Thursday - Many Years Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away....

Real Estate Agent with David Tracy Real Estate #555994

What a fitting picture for Throw Back Thursday! I remember this photo well. 


This was a great Christmas in Houston. Just look at that tree! How many of you had one of those? Left to right my little brother Jack, sister Sandra, me in that hideous hair style and my baby sister Rebecca-Ann.  My brother Robert the Terrible was not born yet.... we had a few years of respite! LOL!

Thanks for sharing the memories!  

I dont remember having one of those trees, though my mother in law says they had one.  She regrets giving it away.

I think I remember our falling apart after many years of use. It was an awesome tree to say the least.

Yes we had a great day. We learned a new simple fun game. I hope to add to that game. It is called Tennsies.

As a child, Lou; what did you think about it at that time?

Remember that tree well. Ours had a color where to sit in front of it. Great picture and memories. Wonderful looking family. You are blessed.

Yeah Alan Kirkpatrick ours had a lighted 4-color wheel too. It was great watching the tree change colors.... I sure do miss that old tree.... the last time we used it the flowers at the end of each stem were falling off.
